I wanted to share my seachem communication on purigen...

    So, my communication with Seachem... Stated that using purigen with medications is probably going to cause chlorine issues because many medications might be amine based. I just wanted to let you guys know!

    Wouldn't you just take out purigen to avoid it absorbing the meds? Like carbon?

    Yes. But I wanted to know what would happen. And yes. Carbon is inferior though. Causes hole in the head, minimal impact on nitrates and is not regenerable.

    Carbon is reuseable.
     
  6. uncclewis Well Known Member Member

    No. Once exhausted it needs to be discarded

    Carbon can be redone etc. however it is more expensive and drains more resources to remake it.
